40 Frugal Fall Activities and Ideas for Your Family

Do you love Fall? It is absolutely one of my favorite times of the year! One main reason is my birthday is in the fall – Yay birthday week! Haha!  Also, fall is just cozy and fun.

I enjoy doing things with my kids during every season, but I especially love the fall. Summer here in Michigan can get hot and muggy. And sometimes, it is a pain to take two kids outside in the heat. Yet, fall here in Michigan tends to cool down (although it was 90 a few days ago!) and we can enjoy the outdoors as a family.

Fall is a great time to find fall activities for preschoolers, fall activities for toddlers, and fall activities for school-age children. Basically, these fall activities listed below are intended for the family. These fall ideas will have you wishing it was pumpkin spice season all year long!

So grab your sweatshirt and blanky and cuddle up to read this list. Don’t forget to print the free fall activity planner at the bottom of the post so you can make sure to check everything off your fall bucket list.

Most of all, enjoy your family! Kids grow up way too quickly so we need to take advantage of the time they still want to be seen with us! LOL

What is a Blog?

A blog is a website that has written articles or blog posts that are helpful to readers. Blogs, as opposed to business websites, are usually written by one or two people adding their unique perspective and expertise to the topic at hand.

What is the difference between a blog and a website?

Websites are usually owned by businesses and do not necessarily have updated posts, although many businesses are using blogging to help promote their companies.

A business website usually provides information about the business such as location, store hours, contact information. email and telephone number, pricing information and other information about the company. Yet, a blog usually has informational posts with a personal twist or list of information. Blogs can include personal stories or provide information in a unique way.

Importance of Blogs

Blogs are important for many different reasons, the main being providing knowledge and expertise to the reader. Sure many get into blogging because they want to turn it into a business and make money blogging, but if you can help people in your money-making journey then it is a win-win for both you and your reader.

You want to provide the best information on your topic and show authority and trust.

Web Log Post

Web Logs, commonly known as blogs, are just that. A log on the web. Yet, many people choose to write about their life as a log, but others choose to create informational blogs that relate to their own expertise or personal experience. Blogs are common ways to share information with a personal flair.

What should I blog about?

There are so many blogging topics. In fact, you can write a blog about anything. Although some topics will be more popular than others.

Do you like chicken coops? Write a blog about it.

Are you an expert traveler? Why not share your knowledge with the rest of us. Although small niche websites can gain a following and make money there are many broader blog topics that can create income as well.
